When clay soils get wet, they can expand and put tremendous pressure on a foundation wall. When this force exceeds the wall's ability to resist it, the wall begins to fail in different ways. Cracking, bowing and tilting are the most common symptoms of foundation wall failure.
Other factors in foundation wall damage include heavy rains (causing hydrostatic pressure) and exterior slabs, such as driveways or porches, that put pressure on the wall by expanding in hot weather (street creep). Large tree roots, soil expansion due to frost, and issues related to poor grading can also cause foundation damage.
One of the problems with foundation soils is that while the earth is continually pressing against the outside of the walls, nothing on the inside is equalizing that pressure. Foundation wall anchors address this problem by "gripping" the inside surface of the wall and countering that pressure.
Foundation wall anchors extend out to the stable, hard-packed soil beyond your home, anchoring themselves there and bracing the foundation wall. This stops inward movement entirely -- and over time, tightening these anchors can even move your foundation walls back to their original position.
Our wall anchor installations are designed to install quickly and with minimal disruption to your home and landscaping. Many repairs can be finished in a single day. Wall anchor systems are installed by one of our in-house crews of foundation contractors. Upon the completion of our installation, your foundation walls' inward movement should be immediately and permanently repaired.
Our unique foundation wall anchor system is designed with galvanized steel, allowing for long-term corrosion resistance. Each anchor system also includes a 25-year warranty against manufacturing defects, and each installation includes our own performance warranty.
Supportworks' Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchors effectively restore the structural integrity and value of your home.
This innovative wall anchor system will permanently stabilize your foundation wall by anchoring your walls to the hard-packed virgin soil beyond your foundation.
After installation, wall anchors can often be tightened over time to further straighten your foundation walls and pull them back to their original position.
A foundation that has been damaged by street creep usually requires a two-part repair technique.
First, new expansion joints are installed along the driveway to relieve the pressure on the wall. Then, a Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchor System is installed along any damaged foundation walls.
The Geo-Lock™ Channel Anchor System provides a permanent solution for bowing, buckling, tilting, or inward-moving foundation walls that are demonstrating signs of extreme wall failure.
This warrantied solution includes a complete wall anchor system and a channel anchor that mounts on your foundation floor and wall for optimal bracing and failure protection.
If you're planning on finishing your basement after the foundation repair is complete, or you just want to keep your basement looking clean and attractive, Hide-A-Way® Wall Anchor Covers are the perfect solution for you.
Our wall anchor covers are designed specifically for our Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchor System. Thanks to the cover's snap-on design, it can provide quick, easy access to wall anchor tightening bolts, so that further adjustments on the wall anchors can be made.
